Description

A movie star's suicide draws a young woman into the deadly shadows of a Hollywood scandal in this novel from "a master of suspense" (Mary Higgins Clark). More than fifty years ago, Victoria Frazer and Roger Brandt were the most popular stars of the silver screen—until a notorious and tragic love affair on set in the Appalachians destroyed their lives. It was there, at the foot of Rumbling Bald Mountain in Lake Lure, North Carolina, where Victoria drowned herself, and where Roger would remain—drifting into obscurity as a tortured recluse. Now, a half-century later, screenwriter Lauren Castle has arrived at a Lake Lure resort in the wake of a more recent tragedy: the suspicious death of her husband, a documentary filmmaker who was investigating the legendary Hollywood scandal. Lauren's husband held the most closely guarded secret of all: She is Victoria's granddaughter. Only one other person knew her secret, the couple's close friend, Gordon Heath, whom Lauren is inexplicably drawn to. Now she must solve a mystery that links two generations, has claimed more than one victim, and has yet to reach its deadly and final fade-out. New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning author Phyllis A. Whitney "is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft" (Barbara Michaels). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.

She earned the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award in 1988, the Agatha in 1990, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Midland Authors in 1995. Whitney was working on her autobiography at the time of her passing at the age of 104.

        August 2, 1993
        The latest in a long line of highly successful romances by veteran author Whitney ( The Ebony Swan , etc.) is a lightweight piece of fluff guaranteed to strain the credulity of her most diehard fans. Events are set in motion when Lauren Castle travels from her California home to the rugged resort of Lake Lure, N.C., as a result of an anonymous letter suggesting that her husband's death some two years earlier was not an accident. It seems that Jim Castle had learned something about the long-ago suicide of beautiful film star Victoria Frazer, who drowned herself in Lake Lure and who just happens to be Lauren's grandmother--a fact known only to Jim and his old friend Gordon Heath, the man Lauren has come to realize too late is her real love. Spaceships, UFOs and government cover-ups all come to light in Lauren's investigation, which is endangered by threats on her life. The bizarre climax fails to resolve a plethora of subplots, making this one-dimensional effort as unsatisfying as it is improbable. Only Whitney's atmospheric evocation of the rugged setting has anything to recommend it.
